An incredible amount of energy is wasted in Melbourne from bad choices of roofing materials. If minimising your electricity bills is one of your main priorities, make sure you choose the right type of full roof replacement – Thermatech from COLORBOND.
- Since 1966, COLORBOND has become one of Australia’s most trusted brands for a full roof replacement. Always moving with the times, COLORBOND are continually updating roofing materials to match changing Australian conditions.
- COLORBOND has responded to the push for decreasing electricity bills by developing Thermatech, a sun heat reflecting roofing material.
- Most of the rise in indoor temperatures over summer is due to the sun’s rays being absorbed by the ‘skin’ of your roof and heating up the roofing cavity. Thermatech has unique solar reflecting technology which keeps an average 5% of heat from entering your roofing cavity (and heating up the rest of the house). This results in you having to use your cooling system less over the warmer months; which can result in a massive reduction in your electric cooling bills. Not only do lighter shades of COLORBOND roofing benefit from Thermatech, studies have also found even upwardly trending grey Thermatech roofs also show an increase in reflectivity.
- It has been estimated using Thermatech for a full roof replacement can reduce electric cooling power usage by up to 20%.
Although Thermatech isn’t available in the whole COLORBOND range, they have chosen some of their most popular colours in the Standard colour chart for Thermatech – you might even find some of their new matt COLORBOND range also offers a Thermatech finish.
Using Thermatech COLORBOND for your roof replacement is a definite win/win situation. Not only do you get a roof replacement which updates and gives your roof a whole new look, you also get the added bonus of a more energy efficient roofing system.
